I'm wondering what the best way to do this may be. I probably haven't worded the question in the best way so I'll explain.

Basically, I have an entry on page which is assigned to a category. On the page I'd like to be able to display other entries assigned to the same category. Sort of a 'similar projects' concept. This needs to be done dynamically however.

My hunch is that I may need to use a query to first pull through the category id of the current entry being shown, then use that value in the category="" parameter.

Can anyone point me in the right direction with this

{exp:query sql="SELECT cat_id FROM exp_channel_data"}




Maybe something like this but I'm really unsure. Any help would be much appreciated

Apologies, I have just seen the related_categories_mode="yes" parameter.

Problem solved.
